Schedule Change

Hey everyone!

As you may or may not have already heard we have had some changes to the schedule for the Silver Stars in Ft. White. They will begin dancing on Fridays starting next week on April 20th. There will be no dance on Tuesday April 17th.

As most of the clubs within traveling distance dance on Tuesdays this new change will hopefully bring in more visitors from area clubs and it will allow our club to have more interaction with the other clubs. Our club will now be able to participate in Banner Raids, special dances, and other events that they hold.

We are looking forward to meeting so many new people who share our love of square dancing. Be sure to come join us soon!

We are so excited to see what the future holds! Hope to see you in a square soon!

We currently dance at:

Tustenuggee United Methodist Church

1715 SW MCClinton Rd

Fort White, Florida 32038

 

(The Silver Fox Squares in Starke will remain DARK until further notice.)

Silver Fox Squares: November 2017 Update

What a great month! We have had several wonderful dances at our new location.

You can find us on Fridays at the First United Methodist Church at 200 N. Walnut St. in Starke.

We held our first dance there on October 6th. We had some special visitors from NEFSARDA who joined us as we presented toys to the Basketball Cop. The toys had been collected at the 5th Saturday Dance in

September.

Then on October 13th we held a special Friday the 13th/Black Cat Dangle Dance. We had Mr. Ellis Lindsey as our guest caller. Some of the dancers dressed in costume. We had a great time dancing, to our favorite callers, with Yoda, a Devil, a Police Officer, and a couple of cute cats.

The ladies in Starke were ‘Pretty in Pink’ on October 27th in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. A great time was had by everyone who attended.

We want to remind everyone to spread the word about The Big Barn Dance on December 2nd. We already have several people on the list but we need everyone to be sure and RSVP by November 24th so we can get a head count for refreshments. This is sure to be a dance to remember!

A special thanks to everyone who has visited our club and supported us. Be sure to sign up for our email list if you haven’t already done so.

Also a big ‘Thank You’ to our club members for their teamwork and dedication to helping our clubs grow and prosper.

Be sure to like and follow us on Facebook , Twitter, and Instagram. Please check out our webpage for club news and upcoming events.

Our next special club dance will be our Black Friday Dangle Dance on

November 27th. Be sure to bring in all of those leftovers to share!

Silver Fox Squares: August 2017 Update

What a great month for the Silver Fox Squares!

On July 1st  some of our club members attended the Independence Day celebration in Ocala. It was a very fun event and we all enjoyed ourselves immensely.

July 8th was the annual Christmas in July Dance, in Williston, to benefit the Shriner’s Children’s Hospital in Tampa, FL. There was a lot of great dancing and many great callers were there as well as a Chinese Auction, Cake Walk, and 50/50.

The benefit dance was a huge success and raised $3,663.55 to donate. If you didn’t attend this year you should make plans to attend next year! Continue reading Silver Fox Squares: August 2017 Update

Exciting News!

Most of you know that we have been busy working on some special events for the club and such. I am happy to let everyone know that we have the information available for the 5th Saturday Dance in September!

Our callers, Ken ‘Silver Fox’ Perez and Shane ‘Little Bear’ Perez, will be calling at this dance. The dance will be held in Lake City at the Richardson Community Center.

We will be collecting toys for the Basketball Cop Foundation. This foundation was started, by Officer Bobby White of the Gainesville Police Department, after a dash cam video from a noise disturbance call went viral last year. (You can click on the links to find out more about this foundation.)

We look forward to seeing you all there! Continue reading Exciting News!

Silver Fox Squares: July 2017 Update

June was another busy and exciting month for the Silver Fox Squares.

On June 2nd we had a special surprise when Tony & Sheila Cridge attended our dance. They are the clubs Vice-Presidents and have been unable to attend for a while due to health problems. It was so nice to see them back and we hope to see a lot more of them in the upcoming  months!

Then on June 9th the Silver Fox Squares hosted a Chili Dog Dangle Dance which was a big success! We had visitors from several clubs and we enjoyed dancing to our callers Ken  ‘Silver Fox’ Perez and Shane ‘Little Bear’ Perez as well as  visiting caller, Bill Chestnut. Then on July 16th we had a surprise mystery guest caller, Ronnie Langley from Calhoun, GA!

Mysterious things and people seem to appear without notice at our dances and we are pleasantly surprised every time. Continue reading Silver Fox Squares: July 2017 Update

Silver Fox Squares: June 2017 Update

Wow! What a busy month for us! The Silver Fox Squares would like to thank everyone who attended our most recent dance, the Sombrero/Crazy Hat Dangle Dance. Our callers were Ken ‘Silver Fox’ Perez and Shane ‘Little Bear’ Perez. We were thrilled to see so many people come with so many different hats.
Many of the dancers also ordered dangles which have arrived and can be picked up on a club night. We dance every Friday night at the Bradford County Senior Center in Starke.
If you didn’t get to make it for this past dance please be sure to mark your calendars for June 9th for our upcoming Chili Dog Dangle Dance and July 21st for our Red, White, & Blue Dance.
We have also enjoyed dancing with many different visitors from other clubs throughout the month. On May 25th several dancers from the Silver Fox Squares went to the Moose Promenaders to retrieve our banner that was taken in April. This was the first banner retrieval done by many of our club members and we all had a great time!
We hosted a Mainstream Workshop on May 27th for our class. A big ‘Thank you’ to the visitors from other clubs who attended to brush up on calls and help our new dancers. Our dancers also provided lots of great food and refreshments for us to enjoy during our busy day.

Sombrero/Crazy Hat Dangle Dance 

We had such a great time on Friday, May 5th, at our Sombrero/Crazy Hat Dance. We had several visitors from other clubs and almost everyone had some kind of interesting hat.  (Some of us had more than one hat which we swapped out during the dance.)

The Silver Stars have had many great visitors from area clubs like the Dixie Dancers in Lake City and the Salty Bobbers in Steinhatchee. On May 12th we also had local callers and a cuer in the hall along with caller, Sheila Terhune, from Indiana. Then on May 26th they held a Memorial Dance where some of the dancers got together to earn a Mummy Dangle by wrapping the caller in toilet paper and festive red and blue streamers. The Salty Bobbers also held a banner raid and took the club banner back home with them.

Our Silver Fox Squares in Starke have been DARK and will continue to be DARK until further notice.

We are looking forward to starting new classes in the Fall and would like anyone who may be interested in classes to contact us.

You can dance to Ken and Shane at the Mandarin Marauders in Jacksonville. Please join us on Mondays from 7:00-9:00 pm at:

Mandarin Senior Center
3848 Hartley Road
Jacksonville, Fl 32256

The Mandarin Marauders will be raided on Monday June 4th by the Upsilon Sigma Delta who are a brand new chapter of the Rollaways square dance club formed by the youth dancers.

We would like to remind everyone that there are many local dances and events that you can attend and/or participate in.  We often have flyers at our dances and posted on our website.

If you are going on vacation you can look up clubs in the area on Wheresthedance.com or even Facebook to locate a local club. Continue reading Silver Fox Squares: June 2018 Update
